Brighton vs Burnley Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Brighton vs Burnley Predictions
Brighton is fifth from bottom following Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Tottenham, but that was another encouraging effort from Graham Potter’s side. Albion has won 3-0 at Newcastle, hit the woodwork five times in a 3-2 loss to Manchester United, and showed plenty of promise when beaten by Chelsea and Everton. Neal Maupay was dropped for the Spurs game due to behavior issues but will hopefully be reprieved for this crucial clash. The French forward had netted four times this term and opened the scoring when Burnley visited. Pascal Gross is an experienced player who means a lot to the team, he moves well, and he can play in several positions. Tariq Lamptey is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed. Neal Maupay was the best player of the team last season, he scored ten goals, he is doing great in the penalty area, and he is a real team leader, all praise for him. Florin Andone (ruptured cruciate ligament) will not play.
Burnley is stuck at the bottom of the table on just one point after going down 3-0 at home to Chelsea last Saturday. The Clarets have scored only once in their past five league games and look woefully short of confidence and self-belief. Injuries have played a part in Burnley’s slow start, and those issues are beginning to clear up, but this still looks a good time to take them on. Eight of the 12 goals scored against the Clarets have come in the second half, while two of the three they have netted have been after the break. Dwight McNeil is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and his greatest virtue is speed. Chris Wood is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals. The bench players are expected to show as much as possible and impose themselves on the coach for the starting lineup. Due to a fully healthy squad available to choose from, Burnley manager Sean Dyche doesn’t have any fitness worries at all coming into this match.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, and neither side should keep the clean sheet.
